Todd came into the men’s recovery program in June of 2019. He was a shy young man who had already been through a lot in his young lifetime. He was addicted to drugs and his life was falling apart. He knew he needed to get help. He came to UGM because he heard that our recovery program was biblically based and he was desperate to find peace in his soul.
He had already experienced too much rejection from others and was scared of being hurt again. We assured him that we were here to help, not hurt him and that the Lord Jesus Christ was the only one who could really bring peace to his soul. After a few months of counselling with the chaplains and Bible study classes, Todd began to find the healing peace that he was looking for. He found forgiveness and acceptance in Jesus and his brothers-in-Christ at UGM. The wounds from the past were finally getting healed as he embraced more and more of his relationship with Christ.
Todd was able to get his Grade 12 at our Adult Eductation Centre. Today, Todd has graduated from our recovery program and is now an intern at UGM. He is looking forward to going to university and his future looks much brighter now that the light of the gospel has turned his night into day. Todd now knows what it means to find rest for his soul as Jesus promised He would do for those who follow Him. If you too need that peace, then please come to Jesus today!
